As Roslyn Taber, a striking ex-stripper portrayed by Marilyn Monroe, navigates the complexities of filing for divorce, she crosses paths with two intriguing men: the aging cowboy-turned-gambler Gay Langland, played by Clark Gable, and the former World War II aviator Guido Racanelli, embodied by Eli Wallach. Both men are immediately captivated by Roslyn's beauty and charm.
On a whim, the three of them decide to embark on a unique adventure, moving into Guido's partially finished desert home. As they settle into their new arrangement, another unexpected addition joins their eclectic group: Perce Howland, a weathered ex-rodeo rider portrayed by Montgomery Clift.
Together, this unlikely foursome embarks on a business venture capturing wild horses in the rugged desert landscape, forging a connection that goes beyond the ordinary and leading them on a journey of self-discovery and unexpected camaraderie.
The most difficult movie with Marilyn, and she is different here - sad, thoughtful, suffering, like her heroine. This is a story about people who are tired, about ptsr, about the desire to find at last their happiness and shelter. This is the last role of Marilyn, and not only her, and Clark Gable - the protagonist of "Gone with the Wind". He died the week after filming ended, she died a year and a half later. This, too, adds a certain flavor to the picture.
